A Great blog to tell you about and some new things.

Update on Fin first, he is resting up nicely and on the mend, totally loving having the rest of the week off school!!! Back next week though! No games for another week mind you, and no footy allowed!! He is not pleased about that but he just has to put up with it!!!
I have a great blog to tell you about for those of you who have not already seen it. Pop over to see ,
Helen is a Crafts Beautiful Designer and has had books of her work published, the current one being

I think it looks lovely and a real must have!! Here are some pics of some things Helen has made but you can see more on her blog.

Those little mini scissors look fantastic!

A lovely little packet of things was waiting for me when I arrived home from work today. A talented lady called Jenny Arnott, again anyone who has not heard of her you can pop over to her blog,
Here you will see a fantastic range of makes and be able to link to Jenny's website,
Jenny is based in Somerset and creates beautiful embroidered textiles and accessories, consisting of cushions, bags, magnets, lavender bags, badges and compact mirrors, all made by hand with a combination of machine embroidery and applique so each item will be slightly different. I am lucky to be stocking these items in my shop and they arrived today, I just thought I would show you some of them!

Well, I will have to go and give Fin his meds and get him off to bed! (He thinks that just because he is off school he can stay up! - not likely!!!) Have a nice evening everyone and enjoy your weekend .
